39
The representative of the main military department of Britain reports that the Russian strategic bombers Tu-160 have entered "the zone of (British) interests" without entering the airspace of the United Kingdom. For the "warning escort" of Russian aircraft in the air fighter took off Typhoon British Air Force. The material on this publishes information service. Sky News.


British Air Force fighters took off for "warning escort" Tu-160


British fighters were rising into the sky from an air base in Lincolnshire. It is reported that the flight took place over the North Sea.
It is emphasized that the Russian strategic bombers did not enter the 12 mile zone of the airspace of Foggy Albion.

The statement that Russian aircraft were moving “in the zone of interests of Britain” looks particularly impressive, especially if we take into account the fact that London, along with partners from Washington, is accustomed to consider the entire globe.

Russian strategic bombers carried out their planned missions in full compliance with international standards for flights of military aircraft of this class. Recently, concerns about the flights of Russian “strategists” have been expressed on an ongoing basis both in Britain and in the United States of America.

      Around Russian borders, NATO planes and ships spin like wasps near honey, and then just a couple of planes and such a squeal lifted .. although we have been flying there for several years. It's just that someone in London needs another scream.

          "Recently, concerns about the flights of Russian" strategists "have been constantly EXPRESSED both in Britain and in the United States of America."

          Well, let them "EXPRESS" their concern for the whole world! And we will also publicly answer them with the same concern of Russia regarding their military vehicles near the borders of Russia. And then "all sorts" are constantly wandering around the borders of Russia, you know! stop

      I wonder if there is anyone who knows, the American B-52 is now flying along the borders with Russia, otherwise the press has not heard of interceptions.

    The representative of the main military department of Britain reports that the Russian strategic bombers Tu-160 went "into the zone of (British) interests"

    Incorrect information.
    Tu-160 were in the zone of Russian interests. That is more correct.

          My colleague, I’m afraid that Tu-22М3 is not capable of flying along the coast of Great Britain, because there is simply no one to confuse Tu-160 with. hi

    But I'm wondering, without entering the airspace of Great Britain, in the "zone of interest" the TU-160 can, after all, use electronic warfare at full capacity, well, in order to test its performance?

      You can’t open the cards ahead of time. I hope it doesn’t come at all. And so, following your thoughts, this inclusion will allow you to record interference frequencies, type and other characteristics, which will allow them to be more confident in such cases in the future.
      It is an unexpected surprise, bam and surprises!

    This is, most likely, Russia's quick response to the desire to send 5 British ships to the Baltic and the Black Sea, closer to the shores of Russia.

    It seems to me that they should say thanks to the Russian Air Force for supporting their combat readiness. And to ask more often to fly in this district.

    The interests of the air forces and other air forces intersect directly perpendicularly, and this is already beginning to be reckoned with. Khorochoritsya, and people do not substitute a mug, are afraid to receive it.

      Right.
      This is after all which side to look at interests.
      It is emphasized that the Russian strategic bombers did not enter the 12 mile zone of the airspace of Foggy Albion.

      What is it?
      Although the entire British Air Force is being raised, or additional police will be sent to the subway.
      It is the same, definitely!

    For such words, they must be trollly touched in the media and quipped to the democratic public.
    So soon Shaved and Fashington will have interests in the Russian sky. Such declarations will not keep you waiting. It is necessary to give a piece of bread in the information aspect.

      And will he, that howl? According to widespread data, the maximum speed of the TU-160 at an altitude of 2200 km / h (M = 1,6). But the same Eurofighter Typhoon moves slightly faster than M = 2,0. From here we will dance.

    As always described. And now they imagine heroes from themselves. The next time the Tu-160 should be accompanied by a pair of Su-35. Then the Albionians will not be able to take to the air at all - diapers will be very heavy.

    In the 80s from Olenegorsk, our people regularly went there. It was called going around the corner. And they were always accompanied by NATO fighters. And their scouts were constantly hanging out at our borders. Nothing special, a common thing. Maybe these "red animals" are enraged that ours come there with a load? So nothing personal ... Just politics.
